My Uncle – the happy recipient of the only other wine bottle stoppers I’ve made, asked if he could buy a few that he could give as gifts. (Now that he’s in the wine biz, and can’t get these one of a kind/stainless steel ones just anywhere…)
From left to right, Texas Ebony, Poplar, Figured Oak, Figured Cherry (these two were from the same wood as the first two I made) Maple (an offcut from my pub table – which turned really nice) and Juniper. All finished with a high gloss friction polish.
Of these six, four are off in the mail to sunny California, and I’ve got two to have. – I can trash those corroded chrome ones, and don’t have to resort to re-using the cork (if and when the bottles aren’t polished off in one go.)
Not a bad win-win, a sale, and a little more progress towards my artisan house!
